i never played the first one but this game is pritty tight its kind of like god of war or even ninja gaiden not the new ninja gaiden 3 that sucked! but this game definatly fun camera angles get weird sometimes. overall good game give it a try.
It is better than the first one of the series with War, but Death actually keeps you wanting to play more with the enticing story line and wondering if you'll be able to save your brother. His personality is great with sarcasm and gives you a laugh or two. The pros are there are dungeons, strategy, good loot, gambling possibilities, merchants, rewards, and RPG style gameplay. The cons however are that the game went by somewhat fast, rather you do side or main quests, it can go by quickly so take your time with it. Some situations with puzzles were hard but nothing that a experienced player to help out can't fix. The ending was abrupt, could have taken more time, but it was epic all the same. I really enjoyed this game, so much that it took me at least two weeks to beat it (and I'm a college student). The replay value is good as well, I may buy this after the holidays when sales mark the prices down.
This was one of my pre-order games. This game title has grown dramatically from the first. I loved the first and loved this one too. The all around gameplay is Zelda in Demon form mixed with Prince of Persia. You need certain items or powers to reach different areas secerets. I recommend playing the first before this title.
Good: The storyline plays off the first a good deal. It also has its own story to deal with DEATH (main character) along with the whole Darksiders outline. So take my advice from above. I enjoyed the Zelda idea of blocking off the map until you are ready to progress and this game does the same. You have to solve puzzles and just to get through the level is half the fun due to how the "path" is set up.
Bad: The graphics arent the best but the game is enjoyable enough to overlook it. It doesnt affect the gameplay at all.
Ugly: ALL THE DANG COLLECTABLES! Its rediculous on how many things they expect you to find. Finding these are a choices however. I got all 1000/1000 on here but didnt enjoy finding all those items.
